The best thing living in the water villa is that the ocean is just a staircase away. 1, 2, 3, and there is the coral reef. Whole island is surrounded by corals of different colours. The water is not so deep but just as clear as possible to let you see all the living creatures. I was lucky to meet a giant turtle twice in front of my villa. And if you are still looking for something more exciting, join the excursions! The must-joins are whale sharks, colour sea turtles and reef mantas tours. We took 1.5 hours boat trip, and I was lucky enough to see the first two, thanks to the fabulously helpful coach @Choppi and @Saafai. Special thanks to Choppi for helping my mum in swimming and getting her squeezed in to see all the animals. @Sathish makes the best cocktail, including something warm to fill my Chinese stomach. @Sojib, @Green and @Santa at the Reef Restaurant also make a family trip completely worthy.

It has various activities and the Thai dining was excellent. The staff are very friendly and helpful. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves except for the high price of the activities such as semi-submarine and parasailing, etc I supposed it's the same in every part of Maldives. One area to highlight would be that staff can be more proactive and lookout for guests who do not put on their mask when they help themselves to the buffet. A staff should be on a lookout for such incidents. Overall it was one of our best trips ever. Will definitely be back again. Great job to the GM of Centara Grand and her excellent team!
